Re: CJ Banned?

Why is Ray Keene causing such problems what is he gaining from this publicity. Perhaps he's being paid to make a big scene, no matter how much the story esculates it won't find itself in the tabloids. Simon How much did you lose on your bet? Guess he is trying to be remembered for something, I'd exp...

Re: CJ Banned?

Yes but Ernie your anology is some what dubious, I don't think they are comparable in the sense CJ's t- shirt did not say anything offensive, and what your saying " If I can wear a t- shirt saying all commies and lonney lefties should be shot at dawn". Apart from that being totally prejudice and tha...

Re: CJ Banned?

I can not imagine discussing it on the forum would have much impact to be honest Christopher. I am not aware really of anyone complaining about the conditions they seemed adequate to me. My only concern was they did not seem to have Air conditioning in the playing hall, which was a pity. Other than ...

Re: CJ Banned?

I agree with Liam it is ashame that a T- shirt overshadowed such a fantastic British Chess Championships. I think the critical point is that it was probably the wording on the T- shirt which people found offensive rather than what it said as it were. I think people are entitled to wear what they wan...

Re: CJ Banned?

I fully support CJ also, it is just the simple point I was making that the t- shirt he was wearing was inappropriate. However I hope he continues with his important role, and I think they could of politely asked CJ purely just not to have worn that t-shirt rather than banning him. I think this threa...

Re: CJ Banned?

Out of curiosity how did CJ get elected as ECF president; And why did the previous ECF president stand down. I think Boris must of felt obligued to hold that sign, I mean christians don't believe in homosexuality do they, and it's not condemned in the bible from my knowledge. I must stress though I ...

Re: CJ Banned?

Well Can you really think CJ's actions are right. I do not think Paul was being Homophobic I genuinely think he was right, It is not appropriate for him to be advertising his charity whilst being at the British, It gives the wrong impressions and just imagine what the juniors and parents of the juni...

Re: CJ Banned?

Well lets get this right, I think it was highly inappropriate for CJ to be wearing a "Stonewall t- shirt why on earth is he making a Advert for this as a president he should have some morals, wasn't it true he has also before put something on the ECF website about him running a marathon for this cha...

Graders rights regarding publication of ECF grades.

Hi all, I recently spoke to a ECF grader, and ask the following question. "May you tell me please what my new ECF grades are?" His response was " Sorry, Matt I seriously can not disclose that information." Can someone explain what the exact rules say within this role on the ecf board because I thoug...
